Cheers Ed!

Ed Pahule inspired this post with his post about old cartoon shows from when he was a nipper.* I only knew one of them so I'm thinking it's the Atlantic divide (or perhaps just me). Yep, probably me.

*nipper=small person in Liverpool

Anyway, here are some of the shows I loved as a child.

Jamie and The Magic Torch (and now I have a nephew called Jamie - YAY!)



The Flumps



Rentaghost



The Wombles




Dangermouse



The Addams Family



The Munsters




And one for Ed...

I loved the Adam's Family and Mister Ed! I still catch myself "snapping" the them theme song to the Adam's Family...

I could have listed at least a half-dozen more. Doing this post really did bring back some memories.

While I couldn't watch some of the shows now with the same enthusiasm, I could watch and watch and watch The Addams Family.

Dangermouse! Dangermouse is awesome beyond belief! My brother got the box set last year for Father's Day (from his wife, who knows him well), and now his three little boys are Dangermouse addicts too. :)

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't heard of most of these. Rentaghost looks neat, though.

Catherine J Gardner said...

There's a Dangermouse box set. :)

Barry, you possibly don't know some of the shows as they're British. Though I'm sure you've heard of at least two of them. :)

Man, I loved me some Dangermouse back in the day. What was that fat little chipmunk's name? Penfold?

Good quality stuff.

Catherine J Gardner said...

It was Penfold!!! I always thought he was soooo cute, but then I'm a girl. ;)

Ha. Ha. Mr. Ed. Hardy har har. :)

Actually, I loved that show as a nipper.

I'm glad I inspired you, Catherine. Now I think with your inclusion of old TV shows, it's time I did one of that sort. Tit for tat as they say.

Four of these I knew and four I didn't.

Oh, crumbs, Chief!
